HUSA Scholarship 2013
This year, one of our main goals is to bring back the HUSA Scholarships to help the students in our community and now we are able to do that! We will be awarding four $500 scholarship to graduating Hmong high school seniors that will be attending an accredited 4-year university for the Fall of 2013 school year. We recognize and understand the many struggles that our community continue to face. For example, the statistics from the 2007-2009 Census by the Asian American Center for Advancing Justice shows that the Hmong community has a per capital income of $10,949 and with about as high as 40% high school dropouts. Thus, we want to be a part of the solution to address the attainment and improvement of students aspiring to attend higher education.
With the generous contributions from the Hmong University Student Association at CSUS, Txawjvwj Vang (HUSA Founder), Dr. Serge Lee (HUSA Adviser), Sak Vue, Dr. Vang Peter Ly, Tracey Brown, Xai Vang (First Financial Security Associate), Chong Xiong, Asian American Perofrming Arts and Culture Center, Xang Yang, Thor Family, Ly Thay Nhiayi, and HUSA Alumni: Kenny Xiong, Chong Vang, Yang Lee, Tou Fue Vang, Cheng Vang, Shawn Vue and Pressia Lao, we are able to present this award to more than just one deserving Hmong student who demonstrates a financial need, passion to change their community, as well as the desire to pursue a higher education.
